The Fungi Foundation

This year a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Fungi Foundation.

The Fungi Foundation is the first charity in the world dedicated exclusively to the study and conservation of fungi. They work for fungi, their habitats and the communities that depend on them.

The Fungi Foundations has four main programs:

- Elders: to recognize and celebrate the ancestral relationships between fungi and other organisms, including humans.

- Conservation: to determine the probability of extinction of fungi in every continent using IUCN Red List Criteria and develop campaigns to protect them and their habitats.

- Education: to develop and implement the first global mycological curriculum to ensure that the study of fungi is included in school curriculums in different countries.

- Expeditions: Discover and preserve the fungal diversity and indigenous knowledge of the last wild places on Earth.
